Newcastle need to think in stages and buy accordingly. So, stage 1 is to avoid relegation this season, stage 2 is to do enough next summer to mean that relegation is not a risk next season and midtable is a possibility, stage 3 (for season 23/24) is challenging strongly for top 6 and so on.

Bearing that in mind, top players are not going to be interested in signing for Newcastle for a few years yet (unless they are on the way down and interested mainly in money), and hunger and desire to improve is going to be a priority.

And, looking at the current squad, they need at least one central defender, one midfielder and one striker - and maybe one full back and another midfielder - this winter.

I quite fancy Nat Phillips at Liverpool as the central defender. He does not have pace and is a 'keep it simple player of the ball', but (a) he is a real defender and (b) I think he'd respond well to being challenged to "improve and keep improving if you wish to be on this journey long-term". Probably wouldn't cost much more than £15m and is gettable now.


{Ed001's Note - he is surprisingly good on the ball Nat, he came on in leaps and bounds last season. I really like him and he is certainly good enough for the Prem.}
